New Mexico Spaceport Authority director Steve Landeene announced his resignation Friday.
Landeene formally resigned in a letter to the Spaceport Authority Chairman and state Economic Development Secretary Fred Mondrag-n. Landeene pointed to a new law passed this year that decreases liability for the spaceport, saying the measure was “the last major element solidifying Spaceport America.”
“I now have a need to regain some work-life balance that cannot be accomplished given the current stresses and time commitments of the Spaceport America executive director role,” he wrote.
Landeene indicated his resignation is effective May 15, though “effective immediately I will not be acting as executive director.”
